It seems strange to welcome you here, since I'm new to all this myself, but welcome, anyway.
I can relate to the background, though I was raised Lutheran in a suburb up north.
Heck, when I was monogamous and moved in with my girlfriend, my mom cried. "Where's the moral young man we raised?"
"Um," I replied, "I'm right here, acting deliberately and taking responsibility for my choices."
Not long after that, my girlfriend and I got married, which kind of spoiled the whole rebel thing. Now, 18 years later, we've chosen to open our marriage.
I can only imagine my parents' reaction!
